We cannot hut wonder and be amazed at God's providence ; but yet wonder y.'hy one SO fitted to Cheer and make Inqipy. should hi; so early called away ; at the very dawn ol manly existence, whose morning sun was rising with more than common brightness, that promised a long summer day of uscíul- ness and well rewaided exertion, the twilight of tiie grave came on; and they who loved him—the aged parents, whose pride and stay he was—are left to sit within the shadow of his eclipse. Tu them and to the constituency he .so honorably represented, we can but offer om" condolence of sincere sympathy and regret ; and while we confidently re,;ign our owu will to that of tlie Onmiscient One, who giveth and also taketh away in his good time for his own purpose's, we cau best express our feelings in the simple sentence, which should be engraven on the stone that marks his grave—"'lie had no enemies.-'' To ourselves let as bring this striking lesson home, and in this hour—set apart not only to honor but to contemplate—let us ponder on the uncertainty of our time at mest. let us look onward at thc work we have laid out for our lives todo, aud upward to that power whence cometh our power to do it. Let us remember that our sight is not the same as His who made us, that when a t isk seems done to us. to llim, the Lord, it is unfinished, and when most unfinished to us. to Him it is already done ; that the thin thread of life where- With we arc to weave thc web Of out* day's work is often stayed in the hand at high noon, and knots, odd blemishes, and places overshot, together with the soiled spots and marks of careful toil, remain as we have left them until the time of the great showing; that deeds whieh are to us trivial hav great influence, aad in one moment tread too fast upon the heels of the other, burdened with its own weight of aetion so much as to be unable to spare anything to rectify or alter. Yet, while we are in earnest, as these contemplations should make us, we can gain still another lesson than that of our mortality, from the one of our number, whose work has been so lately finished. We ¡nay learn that by the cheerful and conciliatory discharge of our own duties, we eucouarage our fellow laborers in theirs, so that we high and low plav-es oi Power, and scatter, broadcast, tho blessings and blessedness of Troth, BgqaU ty and Justice.

Bv order. CHAS. lí. JOHNSON, Scc'y Inilueiicc ol" Agriculture Upon the Gcnerol Xnterfsts ol" the People. The intrinsic and comparative importance of agriculture and kindred pursuits will he more justly appreciated, when the o-enerosity of thinking meuViiall have duly considered its inliueuee upon the Social. Civil aud Pecuniary interests of the American people. The civilization of thc soil is eminently peaceful, aud tL*an.[uilizing. in its effects—-conducing to the promotion of health, and to the augmentation of happiness. Of course this is said in reference to those who know how to think, how to labor and how to enjoy. But we can never realize the peaceful influence of rural employments, until we have heen abroad, into tlie great busy world, to observe the fierce conflicts of antagonistic interests, the stern grappling of mind with mind, the overweening love of gain, the petty tricks of trade, the low resorts of meanness, or ihe hazardous schemes of reckless villainy, which contaminate and curse the very atmosphere of" those places wheremea most do congregate" for the purposes of trade, traffic and hazardous speculation. From these great " sores upou the body politic.'' we turn to the home of the intelligent Farmer, or that of the enlightened, temperate and industrious artizan, aud Hiere lind peace, contentment and enduring happiness [sot everywhere, perhaps, for there are exceptions to all general rules, aud sorrow and anxiety are common to all classes; but if the rule does not always hold good, other things, extraneous to these modes of life, must cause the difficulty. The Home of the farmer, where industry, directed hy intelligence, secures thrift—where thrift secures plenty, and plenty brings contentment— where cheerfulness produces happiness, Witt joy springs spontaneously from an exuberance of grati- tudc to the Giver of mercies—títere yon may see the intluence which a noble employment exerts upon the social interests of the people. But we arc not to stop here. From these flreside sanctuaries goes out a redeeming influence, which is embodied in the civil laws and institutions of the .State and of thc Nation. Virtue aud vice arc confined to no one class of mankind. But we are free to say that the virtues of patriotism sincerity, integrity and pricti:.al honesty, are more congenial with rural pursuits than with any other. Law—what is it but; an embodiment ot'a moral sentiment—-an expression of the prevailing sense of right? Hence, the importance of having onr civil laws emanate from a pure and wholesome public sentiment. And when* shall we look for an influence, powerful, as an element ot improvement—au intluence, adapted to fhe genius of ;;ui* social and pdii=;eal ins:.;l;it.i.;ns and th- wants and emergencies of our civilization, if not among thc independent cultivators of the soil'.'— From those homes, where the virtues are not only taught but exemplified—away from the haunts of dissipation and prodigality—there mm-t, wercpeat. go ont a redeeming principle, thai sbail purify the Ajtsyrlnii Pnlati-m. Mr.Layunl thus graphically describes tin Bpt£- tacle which, in days of old, met the eye of those who entered the abode of the Assyrian kings: -"Hewas ushered in [through the portal guarded by the colossal lions or bulls of white alabaster.— In the first hall he found himseli' surrounded by the sculptured records of the empire. Battles, sieges, triumphs, the exploits of tlte cha.se, the ceremonies of religion, were portrayed on the walls—sculptured in alabaster, and painted tn gorgeous colors. Under each pictur.; were engraved, in characters filled up with bright coppei, inscriptions describing the scenes represented. Above the sculptnres were painted other event»—ttra khiir. attended by ¿sis mhhwImmm-J muviers, receh ing his prisoners, entering into alliances with otliei* monarchs, or performing some sacred duty The representations were enclosed in colored bor 4ers of elaborate and elegant design. The emble inatic tree, winged bulls ami monstrous animal.- were conspicuous amongst the ornaments. At tin. upper end of the hall was tlie colossal figure <•>' tin; king in adonuion before the supreme deity receiving from his eunuch the holy cup. He was attended by warriors bearing his arms, and by bi priests or presiding divinities. His roboa, aa those of his followers, were adorned by a gnmp Of figures, animals, and flowers, all painted in brilliant colors. '■The stranger trod upon alabaster slabs, each hearing an inscription, recording the titles, genealogy, and achievements of the great kings. Several doorways, formed by gigantic winged lions or bulls, or by the figures of guardian deities. Led into other apartments which again opened lutu more distant halls. In each were new sculptures. On the walls of some were processions of eolossal figures—armed meu and eunuchs following the king-, warriors latd^n with spoil, leading prisoners or bearing presents and oiferiugw to the gods. < > the walls of others were portrayed winged priest: or presiding divinities, standing before the Bacred trees. '■The ceiling above him were divided into square compartments painted with flowers, or tlie figures of animals. Some were inlaid with ivory, each compurtaneift being surrounded by elegant borders and mouldings. Tlie beams, as well as the sid"s ol the Bhambers may have been gilded or even plated with gold and silver; and tiie rarest woods, in which the ceder was conspicuous. v,as used for the wood-work. Square openings in the BeiHnge of the chambers admitted the light of «lay. A pleasing anadow was thrown over the sculptured walls, and gave a majestic expression to the human features of thecolossal forms whieh guarded tlie entrances. Through these apertures was seen the bright liiui; of au eastern sky. enclosed ia a frame on which were painted, in vivid colors, thc win 'ed circle, iu the midst of elegant ornamente, and the graceful forms of ideal animals. "These edifices; as it has been shown, were great national movements, upon the walls of which were repreduutcdio sculpture, or inscribed in alphabetical characters, the chronicles of the empire. lie who entered them might learn the history and read the jgfory and triumphs of the nations. They served, atthe same time, to bring continually to the remembrance of those who assembled within them on festive occasions, or for thc celebtatton of religious ceicmonies, the deeds of their ancestors, aud ni;\ia'=4y of their gods.;' Liquor Mascpíctorh Cf the United Statw.— According to the census returns of the United States, the liquor manufacture iu this couutry is a big business, requiring the use of fourteen millions of dollars worth of grain, hops and apples. and turning out nearly twenty millions of dollars worth of distilled liquors and ale.

Since then the ''white hat" has been sent down to me ; and, alter a more minute examination. I find that Ihe party who published an account of it, have erred tn the number of bullet» that passed through it. They must have counted all the ludes where the balls came out tii it, in their passage Lhrough the crown and brim of it. as (veil ¡is where ihev entered.

I do not believe fhat over ene half of that number touched it. 1 Living ¡been iu a fever of exeitemeul at the time I li'ni nol examine it careliilly, and took it for granted that they were right.
